Monitoring proteome stress in live cells using halotag-based fluorogenic sensor

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Fluorescent folding sensor is a powerful tool to detect proteome stresses, including heat, osmotic, oxidative, and drug induced stresses. Monitoring proteome stress using these sensors allows us to dissect the mechanism of cellular stress and find therapeutics that ameliorate stress related diseases. Here we present a HaloTag-based fluorogenic proteome stress sensor (AgHalo) to robustly detect and quantify proteome stresses in live cells. We describe how proteome stresses are monitored in both bacterial and mammalian live cells using fluorescence confocal microscope and fluorescence plate reader.
